OUR FLEET

Our fleet consists of 2 custom made aluminum hull boats and 1 Anderson boat. The 32 foot “Kaiou” and the 42 foot “Abunai” are our custom made boats and are equipped with covered, cushioned seating for passenger comfort. Our trusty 32 foot Anderson boat “Anela” is our third vessel.SAFETYSafety is our first concern. We begin each tour with an informative safety briefing followed by a brief history of our shark tour. Here’s where you’ll understand how were able to guaranty shark sightings.WHAT TO BRINGIf you know you have motion sickness or believe you will have motion sickness, please take precautions the day before your shark tour or at least one hour before. We provide masks, snorkels, and cold drinking water. We encourage you to bring towels, swimwear, change of clothes, a hat, sunglasses, eco-friendly suntan lotion, backpack, snacks, still and video camera, and your own mask and snorkel if you want to. You may want to consider taking sea-sick prevention measures. We have available to purchase underwater cameras and a video service shot in 1080p. You’ll be able to get the best shots of Hawaiian sharks possible.

 

WEATHER

In Hawaii for majority of the year, the winds are at its calmest at the beginning of the day and gently progresses throughout. To take advantage of the calmer morning conditions, we operate our morning tours first before opening later tours. If you’re only able to make an afternoon appointment, please call or email us for recommendations. We’ll see sharks no matter what time of day, or you don’t pay.SHARKSThe sharks we see range in size from five to fifteen feet, and they are often inches away from the cage and the spectators inside. learn MoreSharkboathawaiiWe will travel offshore approximately three miles. At the dive site the shark cage is placed into the beautiful cobalt blue water.VISIBILITYThe visibility is so good (often 150 feet or more) that you can actually see the sharks come up from the deep.Our cage can hold up to 8 people so it is easy for large families to experience their shark dive together. No chumming is necessary as the sharks are attracted to the sound of our motors, which they interpret as a crabbing vessel and a potential food source.
